PCs in my house randomly dropping off the network, IP cant be renewed... see inside - Page 2

SO, it appears that I am not getting kicked off the network, I'm just getting kicked off the internet. Which is NOT what I thought the case was. Also, I had spoken about lowering the MTU, and there is no one online right now in my house, parents are away and my brother is sleeping. So there isnt much if any traffic.

Any other ideas?
Well, if you are saying that you get a "limited or no connectivity" on the PC, then you are getting kicked off the network. All that means is that you lost a physical connection to your router at some point, then it tried to get a DHCP address, then failed. When I said it may be a power issue, I meant from the wall, not the wall wart. Anyway, I would think that all your PC's would be affected at the same time, so it's probably not a power issue. I would seriously consider buying a different brand of router for testing. Netgear, D-Link, etc - not Linksys. Buy it from somewhere like Compusa, then you can return it if it doesn't fix the issue.

I have tried 3 different routers already... sucks. They were all linksys though. I guess I'll give a netgear a shot.

I tried 3 different Linksys routers too. 2 were the same model. All three would randomly drop the wireless signal 2-3 times per day. The range sucked too. I tried stronger antennas, hacked firmware, etc. I replaced it with a D-Link, and it has been happy fun time ever since. Just my personal experience...

I`ve got an old Lynksis BFSR41 that has worked perfectly for 4 years. I`m on DSL , and the only time I`ve had problems is with my server and not my router. When the server was down, I could always tell it wasn`t router by the indicator lights on my DSL modem (not all 4 would be lit), but I could get to the Lynksis site and it would show "connected". That way I knew for sure that my router was still connected, even if my server wasn`t up. Of course, my router is not wireless, so I don`t know if that makes a difference with the issue you are experiencing.

My network does the same thing. But what's weird, its like my router randomally stops DNS requests.

Example:
All of a sudden I can't browse any webpages, but AIM works fine. This lasts about two minutes before my web browser works again.

This happens to all four of my computers in my house at the same time.

Is that something like what your having?

yea thats very similar. AIM does drop off though too. Usually takes a few extra moments though for AIM to go down.
